Los Angeles Is Getting A Second Cat Cafe In Culver City
Soon, Los Angeles is not going to have just one, but two cat cafes! As Crumbs & Whiskers prepares for its public grand opening on September 30, CatCafe Lounge has announced their plans to open in Culver City come early 2017, according to Eater LA.
CatCafe Lounge will offer guests a chance to interact with a number of cats, each one available for adoption. Owner Kristi Galvan told Eater that the cafe will offer coffee, teas, kombucha, cold brew to drink, as well as a few pastries and vegan food options. The shop is a nonprofit, and all proceeds will go towards fostering and adopting more cats.
According to a promotional video full of adorable kittens, CatCafe will be the "largest cat cafe on the West Coast."
We'll have to stay tuned for more details regarding CatCafe Lounge's prices and reservation options, but we'd guess they'll be similar to Crumbs & Whiskers where $22 will net you 75 minutes of play time with 15-20 cats at a time.
CatCafe Lounge will be located at 11913 Washington Blvd. in Culver City
